Latinitas Hot Topic: Blog Post Question

Hey Chicas! - Join the conversation & express yourself by posting a blog or a comment. Respond to our latest hot topic: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT ARIZONA'S NEW IMMIGRATION LAW - SB 1070?

In late April, Arizona passed a controversial immigration bill authorizing police officers to stop suspected undocumented immigrants and demand proof of citizenship. The law gives police officers the right to arrest
anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally if they can not show proof of citizenship. The law has sparked a national uproar. Proponents for the bill claim that it will help ensure border security. Opponents warn that the bill allows racial profiling and unconstitutionally authorizes discrimination against Hispanics (both documented and undocumented). WHAT DO YOU THINK? DO YOU AGREE WITH THIS LAW? POST A BLOG.

Totally not agree with this law, first of all this is an abuse of power and like old times we have to deal with racial problems. Nobody have the right to judge you for the color of skin or hair, is not easy to have the passport on hand all the time and to fill criticized the moment you get out of your house, this law is against the civil rights.
